Looking for CAN'T MISS places in NOLA. please help!!!

Ok so this is my first chowhound post ever! I am going to be in New Orleans in couple weeks and will be staying thursday-sunday. I am looking for the CANNOT MISS places. Also, keep in mind I'm trying to diversify the style of restaurants a little. So far this is what I have:

Thursday Dinner: Tommy's Cuisine - Should I stick with this or change it? I haven't seen as much great stuff written about this restaurant as I have some others so I was thinking about 86ing this one. Was thinking about switching it to Brigtsen's or Galatoire's. What do you guys think?

Friday Lunch: Commander's Palace

Friday Dinner: Clancy's

Saturday Lunch: Cochon Butcher

Saturday Dinner: Peche

Sunday Brunch: Dantes? Haven't done much brunch research. Please help!

Sunday late lunch: Luke

Also, I haven't done much research about breakfast so please suggest! Maybe a bakery for some pastries for a day or two? or a sit down breakfast? I have been to Cafe du Monde and have heard of Camellia grill but thats about it. Please help!!!

What do you all think about my food itinerary thus far? Please suggest any changes you think I should make! Any and all help is appreciated!
Other places I was thinking about:
Brigtsens, Galatoires, Antoines, Emeril's.

Also wanted to get a po'boy as a snack. Where is the absolute best Po'boy? Parkside bakery?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
